Just come back from my sister’s house in Bournemouth where she has a third of an acre….it’s huge and is a big challenge. She doesn’t even like gardening , I said next time I’m down I’ll bring my shears and tackle some bushes etc ..I’m just itching to get my hands on it.

My previous garden was a third of an acre GB, the difficulty comes when you have to leave it.

If you take your shears, please take a camera...

So was mine Denise and I was both sorry and glad to say goodbye. It takes ages to lose that "large garden mentality", I was forever planting shrubs which were much too large for my new small garden.
Sorry Charlie, for digressing on your blog. What a shame your sister doesn't like gardening but at least she won't mind what you do to it with those shears! Have fun :o))

I hope you enjoy your next visit with your shears !

She could rent it out for an allotment. Pity it's not in my area I'd have bitten her hand off for the opportunity.
